Freezer meals are one of the best ways to prep for your meals in the coming meal. When working on meal planning, think of a few meals that are paleo-friendly that you can freeze and just heat up when you’re ready. That way, if you’re running late for dinner, you just need to pop it in the oven.
Being on the paleo diet might keep you from having flour or corn tortillas, but it can’t keep you from having enchiladas! For this freezer meal, you are going to make or buy cauliflower tortillas first. These are easy to find a recipe for, but many health food stores also carry them now. You will then layer your ingredients just like a normal enchilada casserole. Many people on paleo don’t have cheese, so you can omit it or use your favorite cheese substitute. Enchilada sauce should be just fine for the paleo diet but definitely check the ingredients. Add lots of veggies to the layers and some chicken if you have any on hand. Bake the enchiladas, then let them cool when they are done. You can keep them in the same pan, cover and freeze them.
This is a freezer meal you can have for any meal of the day, not necessarily breakfast. What you are going to do is choose all your favorite breakfast ingredients and add them to a big pan. The same pan will also be used to freeze them, so it couldn’t be any easier. You will first start with your eggs, beating them first, then pouring them into the pan. Just make sure they don’t go too high since you’re adding other ingredients. You can now add your breakfast meats, such as bacon, sausage, ham, or chorizo. Follow that up with any veggies you like with your eggs, such as spinach, asparagus, tomato, onions, or mushrooms. Now bake the casserole until the eggs are cooked through, and you’re all done!
These meatballs are both easy to cook and save for later. Start with your preferred meat, such as turkey or ground beef. Roll the balls of meat and don’t add anything extra. Many people add breadcrumbs to their meatballs to get them to stick together and have a crispy texture when they’re done, but you are going to omit this entirely. You will then put them in a slow cooker with some homemade tomato sauce that is paleo-friendly. Most tomato sauce is fine as long as it doesn’t contain vegetable oil and sugar to cook it. When the meatballs are done, transfer them to a freezer container.
